Insects found in University of Oklahoma food prompt petition
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Students at University of Oklahoma are urging the university to change its food preparation after mold and insects were found in campus food.
KWTV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1Q4tE31 ) that a student posted a video of a cockroach moving among pieces of cake served at a campus restaurant Monday. It was followed by several photos from others who say they found mold or insects inside sandwiches.
The food was allegedly from the Couch and Crossroads restaurants.
More than 350 students have signed a petition asking the university to revise the way staff prepares food.
University of Oklahoma President David Boren says he has ordered food services to carefully examine the situation.
One of the university's restaurants was flagged for numerous violations including pest control in October. There were no violations cited in November inspections.
